Kiss Day becomes crucial as almost every person in a relationship longs to have a touch of affection. A kiss exchanged on this day is a heartfelt expression of the love and attraction towards your special ones, and also shows a depth of romantic connection. On this special day of love, here are some tips for first-timers as well as for seasoned pros.
Make sure your lips are kiss-ready
Always make sure that your lips are kiss-ready. Re-apply your lipstick or lip moisturiser to achieve that perfect kiss. Cold season comes with a lot of dryness and it can be harsh on your lips, making them look dull. Use a lip scrub to remove the dead cells from your lips, which will help leave your lips smooth and soft.
Bad breath is a big turn-off
Nothing kills the mood like bad breath. For a passionate kiss, prioritise fresh breath. Regular dental hygiene like brushing, frequent mouthwash andflossingis important. However, a quick mint before the kiss can be safe against any lingering meal aroma.
Ask for consent
Seeking consent is not awkward but being respectful. Before planting that perfect kiss, ensure your partner is in the same boat. The mood might feel right, but consent can make it truly magical.
Understand your partner’s body language
Pay attention to your partner’s movements like leaning in or pulling away. This will make you understand if they are into it or not. Verbal communication might not always be possible, but body language speaks a lot.
Maintaining eye contact is necessary
While kissing, it is better not to close your eyes or be shy. Maintaining eye contact gives an intimate touch to the experience and allows you to share the moment more deeply with your partner.
